Streak of Lightning   Leave a comment

I did have fun making Streak of lightning because I was trying to make it quite colorful for a teacher friend. I was making it lap-sized, but it turned out big enough for two laps.

To finish it off I used a cut-in thin brown border along with a rich blue wide border, and a green brown binding. I do my binding via machine on the front side and by hand on the back side. The brown binding came with some cool sparkles. I make my own bindings.

The back of the quilt was a nice yellow with red flowers in it. I know Mrs. B. likes yellow. I got the yellowish backing for a really good price at a garage sale. I had plenty!

I remember having trouble getting the lightening bolts going up and then back down. You had to pay close attention to the lights and darks, and how you hooked the units, and blocks together. 

Anyway, we got it rolling without too much thunder. I varied the types of lights I used, which turned out fine. Some of them are a wee bit distracting. If I would have used the same lights throughout it would have been less distracting.

This quilt was finished on February 1st, 2014. That is my birthday.
